Tammu had serious doubt some time back that her parents were playing toothfairy. One night when her tooth fell she made a plan. She didn’t let us know to see if she would still get money as we had no idea about the fallen tooth. As speculated she victoriously declared the next morning how she had called our bluff. When she was looking the other way I quickly kept some fake coins under her pillow and said that she hadn’t checked properly. When she lifted the pillow again, “These are fake” and I sheepishly said “Just like the tooth fairy I guess” and giggled. Both their train of thoughts went further to analyse and discover that we must also be the Santa Claus then 😂😂😂 during the conversation I quickly tried to record it for posterity. Sad as the kids no more believe in magic but a bit happy that this was the only lie we were telling them. No more guilt of lying 😊 Mantam now have gone to flashback, recollected some memories and connected the dots:
-> Oh now I know how we got Indian rupees on some days by tooth fairy coz you both had to make use of it here
-> Is that why you always insisted on not asking Santa for expensive gifts?
-> That means last year you packed gifts from here and sneaked in the suitcase while travelling to India without us knowing
After all this I still cheekily wrote a note and hid in their lunchbox today. Parenting is fun after all!
